    Default Jumped from Blackberry to Android

    Good morning Peeps

    I have just done something i thought i would never do and that is left my beloved Blackberry behind and jamp to Android.

    Been a Blackberry user for about 7 years now and swapped my 9900 for a Galaxy S2 last night as i am sorry to say, Blackberry is doomed.

    Spent about 3 hours setting up my phone and it is completly alien to me. and so many adverts.

    So hello all, as this will be my new home.

    Cheers

    Chris

    Welcome Chris. You're not the only former BB user here. I jumped ship in February and haven't looked back. It's amazing what can be done when you have a phone and an OS that really works.

    Welcome to the forums and Android!
    What carrier do you have? What kind of adverts are you talking about? Where are you seeing them? If you are seeing them in apps that you downloaded, typically free ones will have ads. The downside to free ones.
    It also sounds like you have a few more questions. Fire away.

    This may be a little old, but I figured it still may help.

    Thanks for the kind welcome everyone.

    Been spending more and more time with the phone today and really liking the customisable abilities in it like the widgets and homescreens.

    There are so much more apps that i can use as well, something I was missing on the BlackBerry.

    I think the apps wih the adverts are a bit of a pain however, it lets you try them before buying them. Saves you wasting your money.

    Still playing around with it. Hardest part is trying to Reprogram my brain.

    Cool. You can also check out QBKing77 on YouTube. He has a lot of how to videos for the Epic.

    The more i fiddle the happier i get with the device. Still not keen on the email combined inbox. Find it very slow and cumbersome.
